Public Services Commission Consultation 22 April 2013

In line with Government’s Agenda for Change programme and in particular its policy to reduce bureaucracy, the Civil Service Commission has launched a public consultation on the proposal to establish a Public Services Commission (PSC). This follows the Chief Minister’s announcement on 15 March 2013 that there would be a consultation on creating a PSC to modernise Government’s employment structures.

It is intended that the PSC would be the employing authority of not only civil servants, but also other categories of employee including manual and craft workers employed under Whitley Council terms and conditions, and some other employees across central Government; principally those whose terms and conditions are analogous to the Civil Service or the Whitley Council. This would account for approximately 4,000 staff which is about half of all central Government staff.

The consultation document poses questions regarding employment groups to be included; negotiating mechanisms; implications for local authority employees and the concept of new terms and conditions for new starters.

The Chairman of the Civil Service Commission, Alfred Cannan MHK said:

‘It is important that we move forward with a single employing authority. I would therefore encourage all interested parties to review the proposals put forward in this consultation and let us know your views.’

The consultation document can be found by clicking here.

Submissions can be completed online at: or written submissions can be sent by post or email to: Mrs Amanda Haxby, Office of Human Resources, St Andrews House, Finch Road, Douglas, IM1 2PX, . The deadline for both physical and electronic submissions is 5pm on 31 May 2013.
